"What do you need?" Spike asked, watching Wesley for any sign of wooziness or soreness. "I'll get it for you." Wesley's comment about finding his overprotectiveness irritating echoed in his head, and he took a mental but not physical step back. "Sorry. I'll run the bath."

"Spike," Wesley said, stepping closer and kissing him. "I'm fine. I promise. I'm just going to get a drink -- I'll be right with you."

"I won't be long," Wesley said, determined to do this much for himself, at least. He started toward the kitchen slowly.

Wesley knew that with some rest and some food and drink in him, he'd soon be feeling back to normal -- which, admittedly, these days was still not quite one hundred percent, but he was getting there. He went into the kitchen and opened the refrigerator, taking out the carton of orange juice and setting it on the countertop. Then he got the largest glass he could find, filled it, and put the juice back.

Walking carefully, feeling only the slightest bit light-headed, he went back to the bathroom, where the water was running.

"Yes." Wesley took several large swallows, then set the glass down and went over to sit beside Spike on the edge of the bathtub, using his hands to turn Spike to face him, looking into his eyes.

"I'm fine," Wesley said. "You know that? Or is there something else upsetting you?"

"It's not that I don't love knowing that you worry about me," Wesley said, running his hand along Spike's arm. "But again, I want to be able to take care of you, too. Including reassuring you that I'm fine."

"It's true," Wesley insisted. He looked down at himself ruefully -- he'd lost weight, which he was only slowly gaining back, and his scar looked unpleasantly dark in the bright room. "Regardless of how I might look, I really am fine."

"I'm being careful," Wesley said, dropping his hand down and letting it trail through the hot water in the tub. "Believe me, I don't want to hurt any more than you want me to."

Wesley grinned and nudged Spike with his knee. "You might. But at least you remind me to be careful."

"It's fine," Wesley said, getting up and going over to get his juice. "Why don't you get in? As long as you don't mind being used as a pillow." He let himself lean on the wall a bit as his blood pressure did interesting things.

Wesely drank some more juice, then set the glass down again. "I can finish it after," he said, leaving the glass where it was and moving toward Spike.

The water, when Wesley stepped into it, was hot enough to make him hiss, but he sank down into it gratefully all the same. "Can I say -- not for the first time, I realize -- that I really did miss having a bathtub?"

Wesley sighed and relaxed back against Spike's chest. "Yes, this is the best part."

"We'll do it the other way around soon," Wesley said. He turned his head to look at Spike and curled his hands up around Spike's arms.

"If I fall asleep like this, you really will have to carry me," Wesley said, turning back around and getting comfortable.

"Oh, yes, that sounds very romantic," Wesley said, closing his eyes, but unable to keep the amusement from his voice.

"As long as I get to be conscious, either option sounds good," Wesley said honestly.

"Am I?" Wesley asked. "Fun, I mean?" He didn't often think of himself in those terms. Actually, he wasn't sure he ever did.

"I'll keep that in mind," Wesley said. "I don't feel much like brooding now."

"There is. It still feels rather strange to be here -- " Wesley turned his head again to add, "Strange in a good way. But strange."

"I'm not sure it really feels as if we are, yet," Wesley said. The heat of the water was relaxing him, and being in Spike's arms just made it that much better. "Getting there, though. I think it's going to feel like home in a way the other place never did."

Wesley ran his hands along Spike's arms. "What about you?"
